Tonight's special guest host is Barbara Ochoa from San Francisco, a returning NAASCA family member who has been with us several times. That's because Barbara (aka Petra Luna) has a special mission, one which we share with her here at NAASCA. Each year for the past three years, Barbara has produced a series of events celebrating what's become known as Male Abuse Awareness Week (MAAW -- the first week of December). Each year, recognizing that young males have an especially tough time even talking about being abused as kids, Barbara reaches out to this frequently undeserved group with videos, music events, dance and special guest appearances (Help4Guys.org). She encourages victims of abuse to seek help, justice and recovery through her music and nonprofit organization, the P.Luna Foundation. Barbara will be joined tonight by her guest DeWayne Watts from Tennessee, the author of several books including the novels "The Boy in The Wood" and "David's Mark." He also writes a blog, www.DeWayneWatts.com, where one can keep up to date on all his current projects. DeWayne's parents divorced when he was 6 years old and over the course of his life his father married 6 or more times and mother perhaps 5 or more. In between 'step-parents' others came and went. While his books are not autobiographical, they do draw on his life's personal experience. Join us to discuss these and other issues pertaining to Male Abuse Awareness Week.
